Tracy Ryerson – 3,750 votes
A breakout star of The Real L Word, Tracy Ryerson defied the rules of reality television, always coming across as the sweetest, nicest — and let’s be honest– hottest girl on the show. And that may have been in part to her poignant story arc that focused on Tracy’s relationship and her devotion to her girlfriend’s three children.
Having worked in the film industry in development in films including Oceans 13 and Nancy Drew, among others, Tracy is busy modeling, writing a book and developing a TV series, according to her bio on her Our Fifteen Minutes, the website she launched with her girlfriend Stamie.
And if that weren’t enough, Tracy crossed over to mainstream this summer when TMZ ran bikini shots of her fresh out of the water in Santa Monica.
Congratulations to all of the wonderful women who were nominated!
